Putting on an award show in the midst of a global pandemic is no easy feat, but the Golden Globes 2021 may have set the standard for this year's award season. Comedic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the awards for the fourth time, albeit from entirely opposite sides of the country.

Despite Fey hosting from New York City and Poehler from Beverly Hills, the two are still keeping us entertained throughout the night with their humorous quips as celebrities received their awards. Both biopic Mank and Netflix's drama The Crown led the way with six nominations, while The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Schitt's Creek trailed right behind with five each. And, of course, Jane Fonda is about to receive the honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is given specifically to an actor for their "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."

As always, we were excited about the beauty looks just as much as the awards. Many stars showed up tonight with glowy skin and light, neutral makeup, which isn't too shocking since many are tuning in from home. A few bold colored lips did make their appearance tonight on stars like Laverne Cox and Andra Day. Hair just may be the larger focal point tonight with waist-length braids and bouncy curls. Here are some of our favorite hair and makeup moments from the night that took our breaths away. 

Sarah Hyland arrived on the red carpet dressed in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder ball gown in a fiery red hue. She truly is the "Lady in Red" with her stunning, coordinating copper hair that was styled and curled with precision by hairstylist Ryan Richman. Her perfectly-arched brows, natural smokey eye, and nude lipstick, courtesy of makeup artist Allan Avendano, are flawless but still let her hair and dress remain the stars of this look. Believe it or not, her full glam was created solely with products from drugstore favorite E.L.F. Cosmetics.

Elle Fanning might as well be a real-life Elsa with her flowing baby blue dress and glowy skin. Her blonde hair was slicked back and twisted into a sleek chignon. Her simple, thick, black cat-eye liner, as well as rosy cheeks and lips, complement the sleek, princess-like updo. 

Laverne is not shying away from color tonight in this gorgeous sequined red gown and matching crimson lipstick. Her glam team delivered with this entire look. Her makeup is the definition of excellence with a classic cut crease and dramatic lashes. Her usual blonde hair, on the other hand, was woven into fun, milkmaid-style braids. 

The United States Vs. Billie Holiday star may have kept it simple with this fuchsia lip (the exact shade is Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom in Season, which there's currently a waitlist for) but she is still taking our breaths away. The actor's auburn-tipped brown curls were piled on top of her head into a cute messy-looking bun. Her edges were slicked to perfection with a few loops along her hairline. The berry lipstick pairs beautifully with her blinding gold highlighter. 

What can't Angela Bassett do? The star looks absolutely fabulous in this asymmetrical eggplant-colored dress from Dolce & Gabbana. Makeup artist D'Andre Michael worked his blending magic on Bassett for the pink and purple hues on her lids. And of course, the makeup is only the beginning. The actor did not come to play with this extra-long braid, which falls past her waist. If you look closely, you can see a second, smaller braid interwoven into the plait by hairstylist Randy Stodghill. 

For this look, hairstylist Renato Campora wanted to recreate classic hairstyles from Hollywood in the 1940s on Seyfried, and he absolutely succeeded. After blow-drying and curling her hair, he set the voluminous style with Fekkai's Full Blown Volume Texturing Spray. Seyfried's light, neutral makeup only adds to this vintage glamour moment featuring a gorgeous peach-colored gown from Oscar De La Renta.

Host Amy Poehler pulled out her best little black dress tonight with this sequined number. Like many others tonight, she's leaning toward makeup in neutral hues. Makeup artist Molly R. Stern smoked out a few nude eye shadows. The lips were toned down with a peachy-pink shade, and a warm coral blush was swept on the apples of Poehler's cheeks. Her curled blonde hair added an elegant finishing touch.

Though a few time zones away from Poehler, Tina Fey also pulled out her LBD tonight. The two might as well be twins with their loose waves and smoky eyes. Makeup artist Gita Bass dipped into purples and browns for this look. She lined Fey's eyes with the Beautycounter Color Outline Eye Pencil in Violet before smudging it out and layering on bronze and dark plum eye shadows. Pink cheeks and lips brought everything together.

When you're done staring at this show-stopping neon green dress from Valentino, you might notice the vibrant purple liner expertly etched on Cynthia Ervio's upper and lower lash lines — the perfect addition alongside dramatic falsies for this very extra dress. Also, instead of her usual bleached blonde, Ervio's buzzcut is a light gray hue for the big event. 

Sarah Paulson surely made an entrance in this custom black gown and lilac cast from Prada. Hairstylist Bridget Brager gave Paulson's slicked-back blonde bob the "outdated" side part. Monochromatic makeup accompanied the chic look. Makeup artist Adam Breuchaud finessed a wash of rosy color on the actor's eyes, lips, and cheeks. 

Emma Corrin and her glam team may have used Pierrot, the clown-like figure common to French pantomime, as inspiration for this look, but honestly, it looks like she's channeling the energy of Twiggy instead. Corrin's short bob was styled simply by hairstylist Daniel Martin with a deep side part. Her hair was brushed back on either side and tucked behind the ears. 

For the makeup, Florrie White kept things simple with sooty brown shadow on her lids and painted her lips with a watermelon-pink color. Corrin's eyes were also lined and her lashes were defined for a little bit of drama reminiscent of Twiggy's most iconic portrait. 

Continuing the light makeup theme of the night, Awkwafina arrived with winged liner and shimmery champagne and brown eye shadows blended seamlessly on her lids. Hairstylist Marcus Francis formed bouncy waves with the Instyler Max Prime. "I was inspired by the late '60s/early ‘70s vibe of the Gucci dress and wanted Awkwafina’s hair to embody the fullness and body women styled their hair during that era," Francis shares with Allure.

Jane Fonda looked stunning while accepting her honorary award. Fonda's gray hair served as the inspiration for her makeup for the night, makeup artist David Deleon shared with Allure. On her lids, he swept on matte gray and black shadows, and the pink-toned-peach L'Oréal Paris Perfect Satin Lipstick in Pink Petal was added to her lips.

The beautiful bouncy hair the eye shadow echoed was styled by Jonathan Hanousek. He blew out it with the aid of a round brush and both the Volume Inject Mousse and Blow Dry It Quick Dry Primer Spray from L'Oréal Paris for heat protection and lasting hold.
